Martha@Hey, I want to read that

Since reading the Maisie Dobbs series I've become very interested in women at the turn of the century and the early decades of the 1900s. I had to request this book right away from my library, it sounds just fascinating. What an amazing story I've never heard of. I really can't wait to find out how she did it in a time when women didn't stand a chance in that world.

Book Club Girl

Martha - I agree! I've always been fascinated with this period of time, mainly from reading the Betsy Tacy series - Betsy graduates from high school in 1910 and heads off to college but is unique among her friends in that after that, she wants a career - so few of her friends are thinking that way. So I'm always interested to hear about women living independently during that time. And the idea of not only living independently, but of succeeding in the business world is even more fascinating. I'm glad you're going to check it out!

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
